What Yoga doesn’t teach

Fear, anxiety and insecurity. These words are overrated and many people don’t really know their true meaning. Neither how it really feels inside the individual who feels them. So lots of people don’t respect how they affect others and act without any consciousness.

Through Yoga and with practice one can achieve stillness of the mind. But what it doesn’t teach is how to cope with the people and situations that make these feelings arise. Running away from them and sitting in a cave won’t make them heal or disappear, because once the person or situation appears in one’s life again it will just be the same as before.

It takes more than Yoga to face the ghosts of one’s life without yelling, running or hurting oneself.

Here’s my prayer for moments like this. It’s also available on YouTube – click this link if you want to listen to it. Maybe it doesn’t provide a solution, but it calms the mind and brings hope.

“Patience pays. Wait. Let the hand of God work for you. The One who has created you, let Him create all the environments, circumstances, and facilities and faculties.

Too kaahay doleh paraanee-aa tudh raakhaigaa sirjanhaar.

Jin paidaa-is too kee-aa so-ee day-ay aadhaar.

Oh individual, why you are in a very doubtful state? The One who has made you will take care of you. The One who has created this Universe, all the planets, planetary faculties and facilities on Earth, He is the One who has created you. Wait. Have patience. Lean on him. And all best things will come to you.

Dwell in God. Dwell in God. Dwell in God. Befriend your soul. Dwell in God and befriend your soul. Dwell in God and befriend your soul. Dwell in God and befriend your soul. All the faculties and facilities of the Creation, which are in your best interest shall be at your feet. You need million things. Million things will reach you if you are stable, established, firm, patient. Remember, Creator watches over you and Creation is ready to serve you, if you just be you.

So please take away the ghost of your life and stop chasing round. Consolidate. Concentrate. Be you. And may all the peace and peaceful environments, prosperity approach you forever. Sat Nam”

Mahalo to Yogi Bhajan for these words. Waheguru.
